All Network Politics And No Heroes Makes Sylar A Dull Boy

Zachary Quinto is bummed out. It’s not that he doesn’t have anything to look forward to in terms of his career — a Star Trek sequel is just around the corner, after all — but the one-time Gabriel Gray is disappointed that NBC won’t greenlight the proposed Heroes wrap-up movie.

“It’s disappointing that there was such a lack of resolution,” Quinto told Entertainment Weekly about the network’s decision to cancel Heroes without a planned sendoff. “But unfortunately that’s just the nature of network television….Nothing really surprises me in terms of network and studio bureaucracy. It’s the way it goes.”

“If it was in their best interest I’m sure they would have done it,” he continued. “And for whatever reason, they didn’t think it was. So that’s a bummer. But we have to just accept it and move on.”

Are you as bummed as Quinto is? Do you think NBC made the right call in turning down Tim Kring’s proposed Heroes movie, or should they have given the go ahead for one last round of super-powered mayhem?

    I would've like one last go-round.

  • Do Right by your Heroes

    Millions of people watched Heroes and they deserve a resolution to the story.

    bring back “Heroes”

  • loki4ever

    Heroes need a movie.

  • Doug Nelson

    It's not like NBC has anything better to do.

  • Chris

    dear god no, if they ignored everything after the end of s1 and just tied up that part (you know- when the show didn't suck donkey parts) I'd have agreed
    Killing it stone dead is the best thing they could have done

  • PNapes

    I miss this show :( NBC sucks

  • ScrewNBC

    I have been a follower of Heroes from day one. Never missed a single episode, even when the show went down hill during the accursed writer strike I still stuck through it. So for NBC to cancel the show without a proper ending is a slap in the face to those who have supported the network and the show through it all. So Screw NBC you just lost a long time viewer!

  • Redvector

    I'm with you on that score I refuse to watch anything on NBC.

  • I will run a studio one day

    Yes, NBC dropped the ball on this. They banked on other shows that will be cancelled sooner than they think. Heroes had enough pull to be finished properly. So, since it won't happen, how about a direct to GN release for us readers?

    I'd like to see a “Heroes: Season Five” comic book like what happened with “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight”

    Sorry folks but I have to COMLETELY disagree! It wasn't NBC's fault that the WRITERS and PRODUCERS completely derailed this series from season two and onward. IF they had kept the quality up they'd be at season five but it shows you just how mindless they were in terms of story and viewers because the cancellation was looming like a vulture. Shame on them for not resolving if in the FOUR SEASONS they had. It's not NBC's job to cancel low rated shows and 'Heroes' burnt itself out fast and gave itself the slow death fans are still mourning. Blame Tim Kring….not NBC.

  • ScrewNBC

    NBC still had/has the power to at least hire a writer who could write one last story to give long time viewers some type of closer. Tim Kring is not in charge they are, which makes NBC responsibility not his.So like I said before Screw NBC!

  • Tragicblissx

    Bring back Heroes 'cos The Event sucks!!!

  • Angekathy233

    The prospect of having no form of closure SUCKS. Whether you liked the show toward the end or not (I did…) I think that the bureaucracy at NBC needs to step aside and let 'em go forward with it. What are they afraid of, anyway? That it might go over well and they'll find out that they shouldn't have cancelled the show in the first place?!?

    I think it would have been nice to see one last storyline.

    Ah, well, so much for possibilities . . .

    While I would like to see a Heroes wrap up TV movie the main thing this show lacked and I think contributed to it's downfall was it's inability to wrap anything up. Each season built and built and had little to no solid resolution. I know it was a tv show and they had to keep things going but they failed in the execution of each season finale and that is why I dont think their should be a movie because all it would do is stur things up and then leave us with another open ending that resolved very little.

  • notawatcherofmoronshows

    I watched heroes basically stragiht through as a newbie this summer. Truly a great program that merits conclusion. Why not let somebody ohter than NBC take “the risk” and conclude it? There is nothing good on tv this fall. The Event is a bore, and seemingly an X-file rip-off. All the good stuff gets nixed, TSCC, Firefly, etc.. DEAR TV EXECS: there are some of us that don't care for reality tv, cheesy sitcoms, yet another cop investigation show, perhaps some witty lawyers, etc… the nine million viewers for a “thinking” show is a different demographic, take it where it comes, you dinosaurs, not all of us are spoon-fed. Heroes was a very high quality show.

  • DESPI1971

    HEROES IS THE BEST SHOW AND UNIQUE OF THIS KIND . I WISH THAT THEY SHOULD MADE A LAST SEASON FOR THIS SHOW OR A MOVIE IN THE THEATER OR TV THAT WOULD BE GREAT. IN MY OPINION THE WRITERS REALLY MESS UP THIS GOOD SHOW. I BLAME THEM FOR THE CANCEL OF THE SHOW . I THINK HEROES SHOULD A FINAL SEASON AND A MOVIE SEQUELS.

  • Inky

    I would have liked to at least have the loose ends tied up. I faithfully watched every episode even through season 3 (the worst in my opinion) and I felt four was getting back to the level of season one so I am disappointed that they cancelled another good show. I mean they got rid of Surface (a damn good show) just before the finale of season one and only played the finale on Syfy and they got rid of medium… thank god for CBS. Now the only thing they have going for them in Biggest Loser and Law and Order SVU.
